Reminder: Open House for 9th School Site Selection at Pierce School on Wednesday

Posted to 9th Elementary School Study by Ben Lummis

You are invited to come to an Open House on the 9th Elementary School Site Selection hosted by the School Committee and the Board of Selectmen. This Open House will be the 18th open and public meeting since October 2015 on selecting a site for a new elementary school in Brookline. It will be held at the Pierce School tomorrow night, September 28 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the school cafeteria.

The informal Open House format allows participants to speak directly with the elected officials who will make the final decision on a site on October 13. Representatives from Jonathan Levi Architects and town and school staff will also be able to answer questions for those attending. The three finalist sites are the Village Site on Harvard Street, the Beverly Road site near Baker School, and the Baldwin School site.

Site concept drawings, enrollment growth information, and the Site Study Selection Criteria that have been shared over the last four public meetings will be displayed. While there will be no formal presentations, members of the public will be able to engage in conversation and dialogue with members of the School Committee and Selectmen. Written input from the public will also be collected.

For a full update on site selection for a new elementary school, please visit the Town website or the Public Schools website.
